About Our Organization

The Council of Faculty seeks to transcend individual institutional agendas to address the statewide higher education needs of the citizenry of Washington.

The Council of Faculty thus offers the most current, accurate and complete perspective of more than 6,000 public higher education faculty in our state.

Higher education faculty dedicate their lives to teaching and scholarship in service to Washington’s public interest.  Top priority of faculty is providing the highest quality teaching and research for the citizens of our state.

While we have input on administrative and academic issues on our individual campuses, the Council of Faculty provides the only outlet for faculty from all of Washington’s public baccalaureate institutions to have a statewide voice on issues of higher education.
